Cozy Mysteries

Cozy Mysteries

There’s nothing I like better than to curl up with a good, curious mystery book.  Whether it’s during my lunch break, on the couch in the evening, just before bed, on an airplane, on the beach, in a waiting room…doesn’t matter where.  I love a good murder mystery!

The literary establishment calls them “cozy mysteries”.  I call them entertaining.  A brief step out of reality.  Not only do I get to work on honing my detective skills while reading, I often learn a new recipe or tip for brewing a good cup of tea.  My husband thinks the titles are funny—like Scones and BonesHail to the Chef or Scrub-a-Dub Dead.

Two websites that are especially good for finding cozy mysteries are:

www.stopyourekillingme.com

www.cozy-mystery.com

Both places will help you find authors to read, find the books in chronological order (a must-have if you’re reading an authors series), and alert you to upcoming titles and new authors.  Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library belongs to Evergreen, which means if you can’t locate a title in our collection, you can most likely find one at another Evergreen library and have it sent here for you!

Some of my favorite cozy mystery authors are:

(And yes, I know…they’re all female writers!)

If you’re in the mood for something light, fun, and entertaining—why not try a cozy mystery?  If you need a suggestion, I’ll be glad to help!
